Is TV naming case-sensitive for season and episode 'S' and 'E'?

Indeed it doesn't make any difference. Half of my shows are tagged with S and E in uppercase, the other half are lower case, and I've failed to notice any related issue.

Hi, can anyone say whether TV episode numbering is case sensitive please?

I've recently switched from OS X and Plex to Windows 10 and Emby (such a relief!) but all my current TV episodes are named in the following way:

 

Show - s01e01 - Name of 1st Episode

Show - s01e02 - Name of 2nd Episode

...etc.

 

I've named them this way for trivial reasons I guess; that being I prefer how the lowercase 's' and 'e' look for season and episode, over the uppercase 'S' and 'E'. I've read the official wiki which explains how to go about naming TV shows and the only example of this way of naming shows the uppercase version only, before season and episode numbers. Will my shows still be searched and catalogued properly by Emby if I leave the 's' and 'e' lowercase?

 

Many thanks.
