This isn't quite the macrovision hack, but it is one step closer and may help out some people who suffer as a result of LG's incompetence:
BLACK AND WHITE DVD SCREEN FIX:
For those of you who suffered the BLACK AND WHITE DVD's here is a fix that might work for you.
Turn on the DVD player with no disk, wait until the 'no disk' label pops up then press
a screen with a 16 pairs of digits should pop up, these are hexidecimal codes and control the set up of the DVD player through the EEPROM.
WRITE DOWN THESE VALUES BEFORE YOU CHANGE ANY OF THEM - DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID
In order to fix the black and white screen u need to use the > arrow on your remote control to move to the forth pair on the first row, if this is a relativly low number ie less than 99 (bearing in mind these are hexidecimal numbers so 1 to F) then this is probably the cause for your black and white screen.
You must change this number to D7, in order to do this firstly make sure the ^ is pointing to the first number then press and hold 4 or 5 on your remote, after a couple of seconds the number should change to D, move the pointer across to the next number and press 7. press pause and then press power... wait a few seconds, then turn it back on and hopefully, no more black and white! Good Luck!
By the way, I suspect that it is possible to disable macrovision from this menu, if anyone can find out more about what each byte means, please post it here!

From Australia, followed instructions above and, after a few tries, managed to change code from 4 to 0, and USA DVD was able to be played. If patient, even a non-geek like me can do it so my American grand-daughter can watch her favourite DVDs while on holidays here!!
