Hello I was able to make all my apps on the FireTV start in landscape at launch.

App needed:
Ultimate Rotation Control 5.30
Ultimate Rotation Control license (purchase from the Playstore)

Extract the apks(app and license) from a rooted device using Root Explorer
Push both onto the FireTV
In app, set the Global setting to portrait mode.

All your apps that tend to launch in portrait mode now start in landscape mode.

Why would someone want fire TV apps to launch in portrait mode? Then you can't see then?

You are correct. I must have been half sleep when writing this. This meant for landscape and not for portrait. Not going to get any usable function when an app is cut off or vertical.

Here is another app - Rotate Screen Orientation. XDA members can get the full version for free. Works perfect on FireTV, and loads on startup.

Here is a link to the xda page. All links in the first post. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2331514

Just giving everyone a heads up. This app works great. However, if it's running in the background, you'll be unable to sideload any other apk via adb. Just make sure you force stop this app prior to sideloading anything else.
Unless I'm the only one having this issue...
