External DVI vs. External VGA

I am using version of 1.9.92 -video-intel (patched to handle the
1440x1050 resolution) and have my external LCD panel working when I
connect it to the VGA connector in my laptop, or the VGA connector in my
docking station.  These seem to be equivalent.

However I can't seem to get it to work using the DVI connector in my
docking station.

xrandr does not list the DVI at all.  Here's the output:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 2680 x 1050, maximum 2680 x 1050
VGA connected 1280x1024+1400+0 (normal left inverted right) 376mm x
   1280x1024      60.0*+   75.0     59.9     60.0  
   1152x864       75.0     74.8  
   1024x768       75.1     70.1     60.0  
   832x624        74.6  
   800x600        72.2     75.0     60.3  
   640x480        75.0     72.8     60.0  
   720x400        70.1  
LVDS connected 1400x1050+0+0 (normal left inverted right) 305mm x 228mm
   1400x1050      60.0*+
   1280x800       60.0  
   1280x768       60.0  
   1024x768       60.0  
   800x600        60.3  
   640x480        59.9  
TV disconnected (normal left inverted right)

Any ideas what I am missing here?

The laptop is a HP Compaq nx6320 (model RM714PA) and the docking station
is a model EN488AA.
