I don't think I've ever seen an Android box with an external interface for touch screen? They only have HDMI ect and I'm fairly sure that can't carry the required signal?

Touchscreens typically use USB for their touch layer which almost all android boxes have.

I think as long as the monitor has a USB up link input then it should work fine.
I have a hp pro slate 21 which is an android touchscreen pc which has a USB up link input and when I hook my windows pc upto it via hdmi and USB lead (via uplink input) the touchscreen works exactly the same as my windows 10 tablet does.

tell you what, I do have an android box. I will try the exact same experiment with that and report my findings.
If it works it'll be a bonus as the slate is on android 4.4 and not getting an update so if I can keep it upto date via an external box it will give it more life.
