REGION CODE HACK INFORMATION HERE:
You will need:
Nero Burning ROM, or similar
A blank CD-R
WinZip or WinRAR or IZark to decompress the .zip
Go to the site, scroll down to the photo with '6000' -- this is a downloadable .zip. Download it to your desktop.
The .txt file included says this:
"1) Unzip the folders and files to the hard drive in exactly the same order.
2) Burn the folder "RMT000" (including sub files and/or folders) to a blank CDR
3) Make sure you set; 'close' disc and session
4) Make sure you burn the disc in ISO mode (not joliet)
Insert the disc in the player and follow the screen instructions
Believe me, it works. I have tried Region 2 and Region 4 DVDs without problem.
I tried it in Brazilian version of LG DR175 and works fine.
The Hack with 7x0 doesn't works

If the "seven zeros" hack doesn't work (it didn't for me), the CD Rom hack described here will. The vital piece of missing info though is that you need to select region zero to make the unit multi region. That worked.

I have just tried both hacks on a UK LG DR175.
I checked it would play a region 1 disc first.
The remote hack didn't seem to do anything.
The hack with the CD worked a treat - a menu pops up automatically, you hit 0 and enter on the remote, and all regions work afterwards.
I burnt the CD with the free version of DeepBurner and used a CD-RW so didn't even waste a disc. Great stuff.
