Is PCH for me? A few questions

Is PCH for me? A few questions
I only really have 3 questions.

1. If I have a bunch of videos on an external drive and I put them into a Directory structure will it display the videos using that structure? I am trying to avoid having 1000 videos in a single list.

2. Does any of the formats PCH supports allow for chapter points (other then dvd iso) I know AppleTV can have videos converted to a format that supports chapter points, can PCH?

3. Just want to confirm that PCH will work with a SDTV since I don't have HD yet.

I have always wondered why this is an issue with some folks.
I don't even use chapters on commercial DVD's.
On the PCH I use either the "Jump to Percentage", "Time Seek", or the "D-Pad".
The only reason that I could see this stopping me from using the PCH (I have four myself), is if I was using it to run videos in my class, and had to skip to a particular chapter.
But I have gotten around this limitation by breaking down all my class videos into chapters and putting them in a "Class XXXX or YYYY" folder.
But a Movie DVD?
No way, I watch them all the way through, no skipping around.

As said for any file played you have automatically 10 'chapter' points through pressing 1,2,3,4....,9 to get to 10%,20%....90% of the file.

There is a feature request for mkv chapters but it wont be high priority with the above working I wouldnt have thought.
