Default HDMI and dock station DVI broken on HP 8510w with 177.x and 180.x drivers

On my HP 8510w laptop the HDMI output through HDMI-DVI converter to a DVI display stopped working with 177.* (tested 177.13, 177.78 and some versions in between), works fine with 173.14.12 and previous versions.

The intersting thing is that the display gets properly recognized even though with 177.* I get not only DFP-0 (the laptop main display) and DFP-2 (single-link) but also DFP-1 (dual-link). Both DFP-1 and DFP-2 identify themselves as the display that is connected to the HDMI port but neither when activated is able to make that display do anything.

I have also tried it on a Dell 2408WFP with the same results as on my LG L226W.

Probably doesn't matter, but the VGA output still works fine on 177.

Thanks for any help,
