There is a discrepancy in trading but it isn't a penalty.  DVD credits are worth "more" than PBS credits.  (Six DVD credits = Nine PBS credits) I think it is just a reflection of site economics.

From the Help Center:

To transfer to SwapaDVD from SwapaCD or PaperBackSwap, you will need to have at least 3 credits in your SwapaCD or PaperBackSwap account.  The minimum number to transfer to SwapaDVD is 3 credits, which are transferred at a ratio of 2:3, which means that 3 SwapaCD or PaperBackSwap credits will convert to 2 credits if transferred to SwapaDVD.

 PBS credits will be transferred 1:1 to SwapaCD (1 PBS credit = 1 SwapaCD credit),  while PBS credits will be transferred 3:2 to SwapaDVD (3 PBS credits = 2 SwapaDVD credits, and vice versa).

It's the other way around. "Credits must be transfered at a ratio of 3 PaperBackSwap credits for 2 SwapaDVD credits."
