Running remote on Windows also introduces a few extra security "gotchas", because the default for Windows is to not allow remote users access to things like optical drives...

Yea, that's the default. ;) I have powershell scripts I wrote to enable LibreDrive and create an ISO with ImgBurn that I run remote. I just didn't expect MakeMKV to ask me questions in the shell. Oops. :)

This works on all platforms via so-called "universal flash tool", also known as "sdftool". In a not so distant future this tool will be released as a standalone open-source tool, but for now it shares an executable with makemkv. Current makemkvcon has a "secret" command line argument - if the first command-line argument is "f" then istead of makemkv a sdftool is executed and the rest of command line is interpreted as a command line for sdftool. Just make a shell script named sdftool that calls "makemkvcon f $1 $2 $3 etc...", or just call "makemkvcon f arg1 arg2 arg3 etc..." directly
