i have the htc hub enabled to run in the background, however my pinned weather tiles don't seem to update until i open the htc hub. i don't have constant internet connection, i enable it from time to time. i tried leaving it enabled for some time (10 minutes or so) but the tiles didn't update. do you know how often do the weather tiles refresh themselves (every hour etc.)?

Just started a wee test for you oikacz, will let you know when my HTC weather tile updates on the home screen.
I have set screen to be always on and will keep home screen active so it will update.
Will post the time interval when it updates. :)

That's 2 hours now pikacz, looks like it doesn't update unless you load up the app. :(
Maybe their next update will fix it. The version I have now is 2.3 Build 2121.38311

I had every other weather app under the sun, favourite 2 were accuweather and The Weather Channel.
Their live tiles seemed to update fine although I can't remember what the interval was pikacz.
I don't have them installed now.

To be honest I can not understand why HTC bothered with their weather and time hub. It looks like it was made simply to mirror their Android products, but why would they do that -- Windows Phone 7 is a completely different and unique OS?
That said, Vadret is the weather app I use. It updates every 30 minutes (I think) but it takes about that long to start displaying information on the tile when it is first pinned. One cool feature it has is it lets you choose the style of your tile. You can choose to have the tile keep with the Metro UI's minimalistic look or you can have a graphic of the current weather conditions. The app itself is also very slick. I tried Vadret, the Weather Channel app, and the simple one by Microsoft, and came away perferring Vadret. Of course, not everyones opinion will be the same.

I also have the HTC hub. Until about two weeks ago, none of my weather apps including HTC would update unless I opened them. I have received a number of updates over the last two weeks and now all live tiles including the HTC hub update automatically and often. I have version 2.3 (build 2121.38311) for the HTC hub.

Here in Saskatchewan, the long term forecast, and current conditions, can change dramatically (10C or more) inside an hour.

Tried another test today and it does seem to be 3 hours for the tile to update.
Hope the option for more frequent updates comes back in a future update.
Not holding my breath on that one though.
