Depending on what you're going over, Ditra XL works pretty well to meet up to 3/4" hardwood. Over a plywood subfloor, 1/4" cement board and a heavy notched trowel might work.

Perhaps you should use Warm Wire then. Don't use Ditra Heat if you are not going to follow Schluter's recommendations.

The thinset under the Ditra is minimal. But if you're like me, I like to use a good amount of mortar under my tile. I just installed a bathroom floor using regular Ditra, a 1/2" x 1/2" square notched...

Ditra XL is 5/16". It usually works pretty well to match height to 3/4" hardwood. It depends on how much mortar you plan on using under your tile.

Why not just build a waterproof shower with a surface bonded membrane? I really don't understand why installers are still using liners and clamping drains. Technology has advanced beyond that. ;)
