Default Orientation of screen when connected to external monitor


My boss recently connected his Note 3 to an external monitor using a Samsung universal dock with the hdmi port. It connected fine however one thing he noticed is that when he had the phone sitting in the dock upright, as you normally would, the image on the external monitored mirrored the phone so that the image on the monitor was portrait and did not fill the screen. When he physically rotated his phone and had the dock and phone lying on their sides the monitor then matched the phone and rotated to fill the entire monitor. Does anyone know a way around this so he doesn't need to physically rotate his phone and risk it disconnecting from the dock? It's just a bit awkward so if there is a setting somewhere that would be great to have a work around.

When he plugged a mouse in to the USB port on the dock the screen on the external monitor automatically rotated to landscape mode to fill the monitor and if he unplugged it then it would go back to portrait. Maybe this is the only solution? He thought it would be at least worth checking to see if there is another setting somewhere.

Thank you!
