Connecting an IR receiver via GPIO?

now that recently received my Omega2 (plus relay expansion) I'm trying to figure out what to actually do with it.
One idea which I had was to connect an IR receiver (e.g. TSOP4838 which I'm also using as an IR receiver for a RPi-based Kodi setup) to the Omega2 via GPIO. That would enable me to control things via a remote control, e.g. to allow me to turn on/off devices via the relays.
I couldn't find much information beyond this 6-month old thread about using IR receivers with the Omega.
So my question is whether anyone here has played around with IR receivers and the Omega? If so, any advice and pointers are much appreciated.
