Where there's a will, there's a way, mes amis. :)
I GOT THE REGION FREE HACK!
No need to download any .zip files and burn firmware unto CD-Rs. It works with a simple remote control. I got this Region Free hack via the Zenith DVB-318 thread, which worked with this DVR-413!
As you know, the LG company makes Zenith brand DVDs, so their hacks work for this brand.
Do this, but only ONCE -- doing it twice DISABLES MULTI-REGIONS (my tips in brackets):
1) Insert Any other Region DVD Film (not Region 2) [N.B.: I popped in a Region 2 and it worked]
2) Wait until Player Rejects/Ejects the Disc (you can leave it open)
3) Press '0' seven times [ZERO/NAUGHT 7 TIMES]
4) Select Yes when presented with "Congratulations, Region free?" [Enter Button]
5) Power Off Player

Scroll down to Recorder. Although it's the DR4810 which is pictured, it looks IDENTICAL to the DVR-413.
I haven't checked it for Macrovision off, but I did check to see if my hacked Apex with Macrovision off could record a film unto the DVR-413 -- alas it cannot, since these recorders come with an extra copy protection system called CGSM/A. You need to purchase a pricey TBC or a "Clarifier", info for which you can find on the forum.
Good luck! :)
