Receivers don't do direct video streaming, you need another device that can provide the stream. As you have found through the Internet version of Netflix is limited to 2ch. Many devices (bluray players, TVs, video game systems etc) have Netflix and other streaming services built in. So something you already own may have Netflix streaming. Or you can get a dedicated streaming box for 100 bucks like Apple TV or Roku or Amazon Fire.

Can an iPad stream netflix to the 4520? Do I have to physically connect it? does it need a special connection? Or will the standard apple USB cable work?
