I figured it out, you have to make sure you delete 11.4 ota update file(cool star website info) install tvOS profile( also cool star website info) sign out of icloud(YouTube video) and turn off Siri(iClarified info) and put in airplane mode( iClarified) after doing all that and rebooting a couple times, it finally started working properly. Thanks
