Just wondering - can I send out items from one site and transfer the credits to another?


I have TONS of cd's here, but I don't want to request any there. I'd much rahter turn them into credits on PBS or swapadvd where I can use them.


Is this possible?

You have to go to the other 2 sites to transfer to PBS.  On your account pages there will be a Transfer Credits link.  :)

It's a 3:2 from PBS:SaDVD or SaCD:SaDVD.  It's 1:1 between PBS:SaCD.

To do anything with the DVD site you have to be on the DVD site.  To transfer between CD & PBS you have to be on the CD site.

I have no idea why they haven't made it so you can transfer no matter which site you are currently logged in to, but they haven't.   It seems to be a trend they don't put new features into old ones--the transfer credits, the "select all" options on a list, etc.
