I am pretty sure there will not be a 13. Highly likely there will be a D14 tho
Considering that 13 is (supposed to be) unlucky I would have to agree.

Back to the subject, I actually hope it is not a re-branded H25. There are still a lot of folks out there with old TV's that only support coax and the H25's do not have that type of output. Also, the H25's are SWM-only and that means they cannot be used on non-SWM installations.

I'd say that the first feasible phaseout step in any 'process' would be to eliminate the 18x20 ODU. It could be done tomorrow, with any other possible 'steps' to follow later.
I highly doubt that the 18" dish is going to get phased out any time soon, its MSRP is only $39.99 on Solid Signal while a Slimline 3's MSRP is $144.99.

Times that by a few thousand installations / service calls and you start to get some very large numbers.

Personally I wish every new installation included a Slimline 5 dish (regardless if it was needed or not), but it all comes down to a balancing act with the equipment cost playing a major role.

So again, I doubt that the D13/14 is going to be a rebranded H25.
