If you also need an IR Receiver build in then the Soundgraph Imon devices

It's probably not cheap..

I have a Silverstonetek LC016 case which contains similar hardware:  a VFD
and IR + nice remote and there is Lirc support. See

Development is going on for the remote to improve using it as a mouse (which
may be desired or not..).
