    Have you tried changing the values of
    in your /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth & /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth.conf files ?? I did this and hid2hci fails for me but if I restart the bluetooth daemon it will work. I'm still trying to figure out how to have this work from boot
    /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth restart
