Filtering in baseband spectrum

Hi Luca
Thanks for your reply.
Perhaps I am too old school. But how would one make a frequency shift of 225 KHz without running into issues with the folded image spectrum causing a havoc?
Any more indications on  asymmetric filter (complex coefficients) and then shift to origin. is there a link to any page that addresses this in detail.
While I am being skpetic about these, I am sure everyone is doing it. How thowugh?
