E-mini symbol differences and Renko bar issues

I am currently trialing the software to see if I can transfer most of my trading system over. I predominately trade the e-mini. Anyways, is there a difference between the symbols ESU20 and F.US.EPU20?

What symbol I see:

I was chatting with a few other people and they had mentioned:

Is there any difference between the two?

Secondly, when I plot Renko bars, I get some strange results where the boxes are not properly diagonal to one another or the boxes are incomplete. No combination of settings seems to fix the chart properly so part of me is wondering if there is a symbol issue? An example of a Renko plot issue, with the chart configuration I'm using.

The symbol that you would use depends on the trading service that you are using. If you are not connected to a trading service and have the Data/Trade Service Settings set to SC Data - All Services, then you will see the symbol ESU20. If you were connected to CQG then you would see F.US.EPU20.

The most likely reason for an issue with a Renko bar is that you have the option for New Bar at Session Start set to Yes. Refer to the information here:
