I use my old desktop to watch netflix on a 42 inch plasma, should I change the video settings on my computer to get a better quality picture and if so to what settings ?

how is the PC connected to the TV ?
The TV should have a native resolution for the VGA input - if thats what you are using ?

what resolution do you currently have on the PC ?

I have it plugged into vga input and I think that you are correct, it looks like the computers video card adjusts to suit the screen,
I just thought that I could get the same resolution as satellite HD quality

I agree. TV's with VGA or "PC" input, often have limited supported resolutions. The supported resolutions will be listed in the User Manual. Choose the largest supported resolution, preferably the TV's native resolution (although that isn't always possible).
