You can't use it if it has different symbol name. It's recommended to using same broker.

Yes This is a major problem with the prefix and suffix. Unless you use the same broker as the signal provider, in most cases it will not work, unless your broker and the signal broker have the same symbols.

If anyone has a solution to this problem, please let us know.

Good discovery, you must be referring to this: "Signals: Fixed automatic transformation of EURUSD* type Forex trading symbols. If a signals source has positions at EURUSD! symbol, while a subscriber trades on EURUSD (or vice versa), the terminal will automatically detect the similarity of the trading symbols changing their names when copying the signal."

In my opinion, address it automatically can be risky, since you can have several combination of cases as MT5 is going each time more global and can generate mistakes with CFD/Stock/Future/Derivative Markets names.

Maybe a list of original symbol names and a list of converted broker names with manual adjustment can solve the problem and be risky free, because you have more control, for example:

Signals Panel new Input Field -> Signal symbols list: [ EURUSD, EURJPY, USDJPY, ... ]

Signals Panel new Input Field -> Broker symbols list: [ EURUSDm, EURJPYm, USDJPYm, ... ]

This is also more complex but without risk when properly configured, so the automatic solution really is ideal if you have no possibility of errors.

Anyway, my suggestion is leave the automatic resource as an option mode.

I don't think MetaQuotes sets what signals brokers use, which is the issue here.  There is only so much they can do.
