I just have a look into Pivot Pro FAQ 
(http://personalcomputing.portrait.com/us/products/pp_faq.html) :*
What software applications can I use with Pivot Pro?
If the application runs on your operating system, it will most likely 
run with Pivot Pro. Note: Certain applications based on OpenGL® or the 
Microsoft® DirectX® technologies (e.g., typically DVD video, games and 
screen savers) may require switching to landscape mode.

Amaya 9.1.4 uses OpenGL for display, it could explain your problem ? Are 
you able to play VideoGame's OpenGL based in "portrait" mode ?
