Just tried the hack posted on VideoHelp on my 397D player and it worked straight off:

1. press home on remote
2. scroll to setup options
3. scroll to lock (DO NOT SCROLL SIDEWAYS)
4. press zero seven times (message appears)
5. press enter

Here is the official software from LG to unlock region codes on all RH 3xx series HDD players.

1. Go to http://hk.lge.com/support/support_lgeservice.jsp
2. Go to "Product Support"
3. On the left panel, find "Device Drive", then "DVD Player/Recorder".
4. Download the "RH3xx.iso" from the linked page.
5. Burnt ISO to a CD (must be burnt as an image, use free software such as ImgBurn http://www.imgburn.com/)
6. Load CD onto the LG player
7. You will be prompted to choose a new region code - go with 0 for region-free

I think this will be the last option to unlock this player. Hope this finally solves your region problem.
