I can't replicate, but it is interesting that if I click on search icon whe Albums/Artist are selected results are shown almost immediately.

I hope that MMW debug log is usable, I also noticed that he uses TP-Link USB Adapter on PC so Double WiFi connection if used on same router can create bottleneck and slow don search.

9R5I4HTRY3 - I can see that
Request: id:0,filter:*,search:(upnp:class = "object.container.album.musicAlbum") and (dc:title contains "Elton John" or dc:creator contains "Elton John" or upnp:artist contains "Elton John" or upnp:genre contains "Elton John" ), Items: 0-20
Response: <DIDL-Lite xmlns="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/DIDL-Lite/" xmlns:dc="" xmlns:sec="" xmlns:upnp="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/upnp/" xmlns:dlna="urn:schemas-dlna-org:metadata-1-0/"></DIDL-Lite>
It means no items returned from MMW.
If there should be some albums appear, maybe be user should provide MMW database to analyze for Ludek.

Request: id:0,filter:*,search:(upnp:class = "object.container.person.musicArtist") and (dc:title contains "Elton John" or upnp:genre contains "Elton John" ), Items: 0-20
(Timeout of 19 seconds while waiting for HTTP request) Connection error or no response received
It means that
a) Connection issues or b) Processing of result takes too much time on MMW side.

2) UI
From my testing
MMA has an issue in Tab views to show (LOADING/NO_ITEMS)state correctly. So a user doesn't know whether MMA is still loading or a result is empty.
It's caused by tabs, which cover the "empty/loading" view.
This UI issue is already fixed in MMA 2.0.
In MMA 1.4.x tabs are implemented in the old way and it will take some time to solve this issue.
So I can try to fix it also to 1.4.2, but I would like to postpone further testing to version 2.0.X, which should be tested in all ways and we can implement required improvements immediately.

Fixed in and merged to as 0017024

The issue really was that MM4/MM5 was not searching the default 'Music' collection for the album/artist items, but the 'Recently Added' custom collection instead -- this also confirms the user's workaround of changing the value of 'recently added' to a ridiculously large 1500 (days)
