Wireless interference

Ok, so here's the situation, at the moment, my borther in law has a home cinema set up with a samsung wireless module for the rear speakers. However, when in use it seems to block the signals for his wireless network for his xbox 360 and computer. Witht eh wireless module turned off there is no problems, with it on, no internet.

I have tried changing the wireless channels on the router upstairs but still no luck.

So, in his room he has a telephone cable that is connected to his sky. Could it be possible to have this connected to a router as well as the phone line upstairs in the family room also connected to a router?
So effectivly there would be 2 telephone lines both connected to a router. They are both the same phone line. Not even sure thats possible and certainly doesn't sound possible in my head!

Of course if anyone knows how to stop them interfering in the first place that would be good.

Ok so basically there is no fix in the wireless side of things then. Both using the same frequency. Hmmm.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
