Actually they started sometime on that Friday (Sept. 7),
between about 4:30-7:30pm.  P=)

The actual 5.1 link-up was sometime before 4:45pm yesterday
(Thu) afternoon.  They *were* //5.1 for at least a couple
of hr.s *last* Thursday afternoon, but were back to the
¾cb slide by 8pm.
One interesting quirk:  While their regular PSIP ID is
“MeTV”, during last Thursday’s 5.1//, they ID-ed as
“WCVB 5”, and now——again //5.1——they are ID-ing as
“WCVB-DT” (but broadcasting in cropped 4:3 SD), while 5.1
IDs as just “WCVB” but is 16:9 HD!

They reportedly plan to start MeTV on Monday, October 1st.
