    I recently installed a pinball app, and when I invoked it I got an error that said something like..."This cannot be viewed in portrait mode". then the app closed. My question is, are all that apps in the app store made to be used on google tv, if so, why did I get this error.

    No. Not all the apps are made for Google TV. It is actually up to the developer's digression to display their app for Google TV. The Android Market will filter device compatibility and availability by whatever the developer declared in the Manifest.XML file of their app. This is discussed a little more in detail here, " Feature Support in Google TV"

    As for your orientation problem, you should look into Orientation Control which will skip that error if it is a non-fatal.
