hcitool scan/inquire finds no nearby bluetooth devices

I'm trying to find nearby bluetooth devices via command line, and my luck is very disappointing so far. From the desktop (KDE) I can find anything in my vicinity. While looking for my device I can find 10 others in my area, but hcitool can barely find my own device. Why is this? Is there a better tool that will actually do the job?
