    Hi All!

    I have recently purchased a generic Chinese Android TV Box. Details below.

    • Model HXSTB Android TV Box X2 Series Rev. A
    • Running Android 2.3.5
    • Kernel version 2.6.35.7
    • Build Number 20120612.174413
    • Cortex A9 1GHz

    It works well except I cannot get a USB webcam to work (which is one of the reasons I bought it!). I have tried factory restore twice and still nothing. It does not recognize the camera on the system or through Skype.

    I assume it has something to do with the 'Camera' app not working. When I try and open the 'Camera' app it comes up with the error below:

    process com.android.camera not working

    Does anyone have any ideas? Does anyone know how to update Android or the camera app on this TV box?

    Thanks

    Hi, welcome to the forums.

    Unfortunately, I have *zero* experience with android TV devices. And your factory resets would fix anything I could have thought of. The only thing I would try is maybe an alternative camera app?

    Good luck!
