Default HDMI on 9400M?

Does anyone have HDMI output working on the GeForce 9400M?

I got a new Dell XPS m1340 this week, which has the 9400M G and 9200M GS both on board. My understanding is that under Linux I can only use the 9400M (I had to stick its BusID in xorg.conf to get X to choose a card, and if I put the BusID of the 9200 instead, X refuses to start).

Is there any trick required to get HDMI output working on this card?

I'm running "X.Org X Server (1.6.0 RC 2)" with Nvidia driver 180.22 (so I'm using IgnoreABI). The VGA output works fine. I can't try the DisplayPort output because I don't have a cable for it. The HDMI output does work in Vista. My display is a ViewSonic VX2835wm.

Update: upgrading to the 180.27 drivers has fixed this issue, and I can now detect and enable the HDMI output, but only with Xorg, not 902. With Xorg, when I click "Apply" after enabling twinview on an external output (HDMI or VGA) in nvidia-settings, I get an error dialog which says:

"Failed to set MetaMode (1) 'DFP-0: nvidia-auto-select @1280x800 +0+0, DFP-1: nvidia-auto-select @1920x1200 +1280+0' (Mode 3200x1200, id: 66) on X screen 0."
