    It's odd but the code below works just fine in the windows phone emulator... however it fails to set the background image once it's deployed on the phone.  It successfully creates the background image when using the emulator but Deploying to the Phone leaves the background image blank.

    I've abstracted my code below . 

    RadExtendedTileData extendedData = new RadExtendedTileData();
    extendedData.Title = String.Format( "My_Title_String" );
    extendedData.BackgroundImage = new Uri(  "My_Image_Path"  );    
    extendedData.BackVisualElement = My_Grid_X_Name;
    LiveTileHelper.CreateTile(extendedData, My_URI_DeepLink");

    Note:  the image is on a server (not locaally on the phone), but it's public and can be accessed from any browser.  I have tried several different images from other online websites with no success.

    Any Ideas on what might be causing that?

    I think the problem is fixed.

    I noticed the same behavior when using the standard ShellTile and StandardTileData.. excluding Telerik's LiveTileHelper.
    After looking through all my code I decided to reboot my phone which then started working again.

    So if any recieve the above behavior described try the ol - "Reboot first"  :)

    Please consider this issue closed.
