Android TV - Activity going to portrait mode when exiting full screen

When I run my application in Android TV and exit full screen mode of JWPlayer, the activity enters portrait mode, making the UI stretched since Android TV tries to fit the portait app into the screen.

That would be an expected behaviour but Android TV apps are never in portrait mode, I don't see why it should go back to portrait when exiting fullscreen ? The activity does start : landscape mode, enter fullscreen : landscape mode, exit fullscreen : portrait mode. Why ?

Is there a fix on my end or is it a bug in JWPlayer ?
