My mates been given an On digital box (no other details). He says he plugged it in & it found no channels. We live in a 'may need wideband aerial' area, this was just through his normal aerial. Dose the box sound goosed or do you think without the proper aerial he'll receive nothing what so ever? Are On digital boxes just freeview? Any help apreciated.
 
If the reception conditions are not especially good AND the transmitter frequencies for Freeview are sufficiently different to those that are used for analog (the wideband aerial statement suggests that this is the case where you are) then that may easily be enough for the box to fail to register channels.

Ondigital boxes are perfectly suitable for receiving Freeview.
 
Get a new downlead too while you are it it. Use the type that is used for satellite dishes (has an extra layer of foil screening). A good local aerial contractor should be able to advise further - for example whether or not you need a masthead signal amplifier as well. And ensure that the FIRST thing the aerial cable goes into after it enters your house is your set top box.
