Question... Complete novice, so apologises already. If I connect a a sound bar direct from the digital input from the rear of the TV set, does that allow sound from ALL TV channels, ie HDMI 1 as well as the normal TV channel ( Freeview )

both your tv and the sound bar will need to support ARC if you are trying to use HDMI

you will more than likely need to have the SB plugged into HDMI1 as that is normally the only one that supports ARC
if not then depending if your tv has a optical output you can use that and another option...

Yes that will pass sound from the current input source to the soundbar.

So in reflection, I can hear sound from HDMI 1,2,3 and normal TV channel if optical output from TV is connected to Optical input on sound bar..

Yes. Whichever source you select on the tv will pass the audio to the optical output on the back of the tv
