Strange problem

First off, I am not the smartest computer guy. I know some but nothing about wireless networks. My cable guy helped me set up my wireless router for my internet.

This seems to me like a very strange problem. I had a wireless network with my computer, a printer, and my PS3 on it. Then I decided to move some stuff around to get some more room. I don't have a very big house. So I moved my entertainment center (TV, Home Stereo, PS3, XBOX, Cable Box, and DVD player) into a different room. And since I use a wired connection for my XBOX I moved the modem and router out there also. I got everything hooked up and turned on my computer. And the internet worked just fine. But as soon as I turned on my TV I lose my wireless network. It doesn't even say I have any connections available. And as soon as I turn just the TV off, it reconnects. This seems so weird to me. Because the only connection they share is the cable and I can have the cable box on with no problems. But it doesn't effect the PS3. I can get a connection on it no matter what.

I have tried everything. Even moving things back the way they were. Nothing works! I can use wired connections for everything, but then I just wasted money getting a new wireless printer and there are so many wires.

My router is a Linksys WRT150N. My TV is an Insignia. Never heard of the brand before. I bought it at Best Buy.

Please help me!!!!
