I have an AirPods Gen 3, connected to my iPad and iPhone. However, from time to time, while our Apple TV is on, a prompt will show on the screen (top right corner) to connect the AirPods.

Is there a way to prevent that, but, still keep ‘automatic’ connect for the iPad and iPhone?

Hi… Yes there is a way.

On the Apple TV, go to the Settings app, then to Remotes and Devices and choose Bluetooth. At the top, you should have a setting called "Suggest Nearby AirPods", set that to Off and you should be good to go :)
