Webcam not working Android TV Box

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
