Not in theory -- the stereo signal is being upmixed to "simulated" surround sound instead of native surround sound (where the receiver is getting 6 channels of data instead of 2). That said, the compression is so high on Netflix streams that you aren't exactly working with super high quality stuff in the first place. I wouldn't sweat it.

It will if you check the input signal information. PCM is not a surround mode

The front display is showing you the current surround mode
