Sims are not able to lay down on chaise longue and watch the TV

How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.75.125.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Expansions: ALL Game packs: Every pack EXCEPT: Journey To Batuu, Realm of Magic, Vampires Stuff packs: Every one EXCEPT: Paranormal, My first pet, Fitness, Romantic Garden, Perfect Patio
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Let the sim lay down on longue part of the new modulair sofa system from the Dream Home Decorator and command the sim to watch TV.
What happens when the bug occurs? Sims are not able to watch TV while laying on longue sofa, sims get up to find another seat.
What do you expect to see? I expect the sims to stay on the longue and watch the TV while laying down.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

So I bought the new Dream Home Decorator pack and I was very excited to give my sims family a new cozy couch with a chaise longue. 
I expected the sims to be able to watch TV from there, because we already have that interaction for bed. But I found this happens:

When you let the sim to lay down first and then command to watch the tv, the sim will get up to find another seat. 
But when the sim is already watching the tv from another seat and you click on the chaise, the sim will get up to lay down and will continue to watch tv. 

So I guessed this was a bug and was asked on the Sims forum to report it here.
Also an another simmer pointed out in the forum thread, that her sim did autonomously lay down and watch the tv, so autonomy is not a problem. 

In addition I tested it out with toddlers, and no issues there. The toddlers are able to sit there, watch tv and can even talk with other sims. (Would be also really nice to get the option to talk with other sims while laying down, it was a bit dissapointing that it wasn't patched in again...)

I wish this could be fixed and thanks for the help!

I tested this. Just have a modular chaise. Sims is watching fine from there.

Could you guys add some pictures for your setup ?

@ChillaXbruhZ What are diagonal couches ? Do you mean the sectional ones ?

Is this what you are seeing: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/DHD-Sim-will-not-stay-seated-on-modular-sofa-while-watching-tv... ? That doesn't say anything about getting stuck though

I don't yet have this pack, but I find this happens even without the DHD pack (so any sofa). I'd say it started after that pack was released though.
