I tried extensively last night to get top/bottom to work with cable. Alas, nothing worked. I tried all formats, switched off and on, pushed buttons and nothing works. Side-by-side works great, and while it's less than true 720p resolution, still looked good on my ACER. I read more about top/bottom and SBS and it appears that all sports is in top/bottom since it handles motion better and all movies, etc. are in sbs because it's more universal. So sports is not a big issue for me, so I can live with SBS only from cable and blu-ray from my PC, just a pain to plug and unplug to get each setup properly.
Oh, and pass through for cable is no problem and looks fine, but I also have a Mits 3800 for 1080p and watch most cable on that, so that's the plug and unplug issue since I don't have a switcher set up yet to handle it all.
