How to rotate an Android tablet game (portrait style) to display in (landscape style) on a TV?

Catherine M April 4, 2013

I attach my tablet to my TV with an HDMI cable to play (exercise) the brains of friends who suffer from Alzheimers and such. Most games (word search, matching, etc.) display on my tablet in portrait mode and show up on the TV screen horizontally. Very few games are orientated in landscape mode. These games do not have an option to play in a different orientation.

Does anyone know how I can turn the image of the game so we don’t have to see it sideways on the TV screen?

      do notice perhaps it may not work for all games and sometime can drop video framerate, in that case contact the developper for update to be released.
