Voiceover navigation on Apple TV

tvOS and Apple TV Apps

So recently, I have been using my Apple TV more, and the navigation with Voiceover is more like what you would find on iOS. For a while, I was able to have Voiceover just follow focus and use my Apple TV like anyone else would. However, that option seems to be gone.
I contacted Apple, and they said they're putting in a feature request. For those who use the Apple TV, is there a way to get the old navigation style back and I'm just missing it?

The old navigation style is still working for me, but I haven't updated my AppleTV. It seems there were a lot of features removed with the release of iOS 15. My thoughts would be to see if there are any options on downgrading the AppleTV. I know there's a USB type C port that can be used to restore the box, so I'm thinking there might be an unofficial option for downgrading.

So not long after posting this topic, I figured out what you do.
Simply perform a two finger triple tap to toggle navigation modes, and you'll have the old mode back.
