Does anyone know if there is any possiblity that the credit transfer will be changed?  It seems so unreasonable to get movies 1 DVD per credit and then the credits are more expensive than the book credits.  Some of the books are very expensive.

You could certainly contact the PBS team with your thoughts but it seems unlikely. Some books are pricier than DVDs, but some are much less - I'd say the average price of a brand-new (one-disc, not a series) DVD movie can be anywhere from 15 to 20 dollars depending on what it is and whether it's bluray, on sale, etc. The average price of a brand-new hardback is probably comparable, and paperbacks are probably a little cheaper. So on the whole, 2 DVD credits to 3 book credits seems about right to me.

If you're worried about the DVD credits costing more than the book credits, can't you just buy book credits and transfer them to the DVD site?
