Mhl to hdmi help

I picked up the official samsung Mhl 2.0 to hdmi and it works great.. Just as expected but will try to explain best I can.. Any way to make the phone stay horizontal so the image is full screen and not have black bars on the side.. You can do it by turning the phone sideways but when you have the Dongal plus hdmi cable attached holding the phone sideways isn't as convenient as holding it normal.. Basically I want the opposite of when you disable screen rotation.. But I want it to stay horizontal not vertical

I use an app to control rotation, when connected to mhl I just force landscape mode. I use ultimate rotation control, but there are other apps as well.
