    I'm using the background option and there is a section of my background that isn't showing through.
    Any ideas as to why?

    This is how it normally looks.


    This is the spot in question.

    Well, I don't know how to edit with the new Tapatalk app.
    Look underneath the NBA Jam tile.
    That's not a black tile.
    There is no tile there, so it should be visible.

    those are apps who doesn't support transparent live tile just yet which is an 8.1 feature.

    That black spot is because you didn't pin a tile there.

    If you don't want it, pin a small tile to that very location.

    Why wouldn't an empty spot show the background?

    Let me put it this way: transparent tiles display the background image. Transparent tiles.

    The tiles display the background, otherwise the tiles would be practically unusable (or the background would be so.)

    Oh, so it really isn't a desktop background.
    It's a tile background.
    Of there is no tile then there is no background.
