The DM500s is a sat box not a cable box.
It is a Linux based box and yes you will need to flash it with an image that you like.
These things work best on a motorised or multi lnb disec switch.
You can CS with them but it is not easy.
You may also need a cam module to clear encrypted chans.
There is lots of info on the web for all dreamboxes.
It is more of an Enthusiasts box.
I assume you mean a cable box that will work in Ireland.
I would have a good look around this site there seems to be 2 main contenders the starview and the Kryptview.
But I have no idea if either work in Irleand soz.
