Shannon Massman (blendyshannon) added a comment to D2133: Viewport HMD integration using OpenHMD.

I'd love help diagnosing this so I can try it out.

Hey, thanks for the report!
So currently on Windows you have to run Blender with Administrator Permissions to automatically disable the OVRService (which is a windows service which is always on....), this will change soon with a patch that is in review at the moment (which will automatically ask for elevation when disabling the service).
Extended mode is a bit tough, when the OVR driver is installed, you have to run 'DirectDisplayConfig.exe off' to disable direct mode.
If the OVR service is not installed, it will work out of the box.
The Screen will turn on in extended when creating the HMD window.
We are in the process of getting direct mode access on Windows through Nvidia, but the NDA process is a bit tough so that can take a while.
We do have Extended mode support on Linux now, though that has to be implemented still.

First, support for the idea. I was looking for this a while back, I just found out this exists. I just bought a couple of junk HMD modelling tools, really pretty awful. Wish I had Blender in my Oculus. Granted, it's still early for a good quality experience, but IMO this sort of functionality is the real utility of HMDs.
