    Can you provide more info on how to use the LiveTileHelper with a RadCycleTileData..
    I'd like to get images from a external URL (website) and create it...
    I tried

    List<Uri> images = new List<Uri>();
                      RadCycleTileData RadTile = new RadCycleTileData();
                      int start = 0;
                      int max = 10;
                      foreach (var item in result)
                          images.Add(new Uri(item.Url, UriKind.Absolute));
                          if (start >= max)
                      IEnumerable<Uri> CycleImages = images;
                      RadTile.CycleImages = CycleImages;
                      LiveTileHelper.UpdateTile(tile, RadTile);

    but assigning the  RadTile.CycleImages = CycleImages; does not works :(

    Hi Cristovao,

    This is the right approach for using LiveTileHelper with RadCycleTileData but Windows Phone 8' s CycleTileTemplate only supports local URIs and can't be used with remote web URIs.

    I hope this information helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
