Advice on Seiki SE58GY27 58"

I'm at my wits end. I just got a new 58 inch Seiki from a what I thought was a good TigerDirect deal on Black Friday and hooked it up to my HTPC running the latest Emby WMC which I've never had a problem with.
I disabled motion smoothing on the TV because it makes everything look like a soap opera.

When I put on a normal show like Game of Thrones or Blacklist everything looks great.
When we put on Bob's Burgers, Family Guy or even an animated movie like Ninja Scroll or Kiki's Delivery Service, there are stutters during even moderate motion.

I updated my drivers, I tweaked my LAV filters, I tried every setting the TV has other than the motion smoothing. Nothing seemed to help.
So I said screw it, I hooked up a Roku 3 and tried playing those things with the Emby app on that. It did the exact same thing!

I tried using different HDMI cables, different HDMI ports, switching to VGA cables with the HTPC, no difference.
All the shows play fine on the old TV.



I really don't want to have to return the TV but I don't see how it could be anything else.

Thoughts?
