Photo Rotation in Stand Alone Mode

I have retired my SageTV server and am using an HD-300 in stand alone mode to display a photo screensaver on one of my TVs. I have discovered that it does not recognize the "rotation" parameter in the photo metadata (set by Windows File Explorer.). The only workaround I have found for this is to use a third party program that physically rotates the photos. Given the number of photos I have, this is a giant PITA. The program I found does process multiple photos by directory buy it has limitations.

Given that the HD-300 will never see a firmware update, does anybody have any ideas on how to get around this?

Sage Server: 8th gen Intel based system w/32GB RAM running Ubuntu Linux, HDHomeRun Prime with cable card for recording. Runs headless. Accessed via RD when necessary. Four HD-300 Extenders.
