The short and skinny.

FortiGate firewall at my edge.
AppleTV 4k as my homekit bridge wired directly to FortiGate switch port.
Acess Point bridged to FortiGate switch.
MyQ 819LMB wireless to access point.
Two Liftmaster MyQ garage doors - wireless/radio to 819LMB.

All devices are in the same subnet with policies allowing unrestricted bidirectional communication inside the network.

Homekit works perfectly with other devices (Lutron Caseta Switches).

MyQ app will open/close and show notifications for both garage doors.
Homekit will only show notifications for MyQ garage doors.

Power cycling the MyQ homebridge will occasionally allow homekit to open/close a door before it stops communicating.

Obviously aggravating, the whole purpose of buying the 819LMB was to have homekit integration.

I really wish I could help, but I can’t. My garage door opener has worked perfectly with or without Siri and HomeKit for over a year. I love it! Then again, as a retired software engineer, I can tell you my opinion is Chamberlain does not employ enough or smart enough engineers to figure out how to support two openers. Sorry, Chamberlain, but you have blown it. You had the opportunity to corner the Market for openers, and you've blown it. I can’t count the number of folks on this blog who have had issues with two garage door openers! As I said almost a year ago, Chamberlain needs to ask Apple engineers for help, especially since both companies stand to benefit from solving this problem.
