See: This has to be because my graphics card is aging but still awesome at playing 1080p h264 video in libreElec 7.0.2. I have a Geforce 7900 GTX with 512mb DDR3 ram. Its a bad ass graphics card I dont care who says its old and past its prime, this thing rocks.

Update 2: It seems linux nvidia driver 304.131 is included. I have no idea what the issue is than.

Nope, Nvidia Legacy uses the 340.96 driver. Current Nvidia hardware (non-legacy) uses 367.35. Neither support GeForce 7900 GTX.

We switched from 304.131 to 340.96 in April at the request of other nvidia users that considered the 340 driver to be superior in terms of image quality to the 304 driver.

You can still find the 304.131 driver in LibreELEC 7.0.x, but in LibreELEC 8.x (and these test builds) the legacy driver will be 340.96.

I'm afraid you're out of luck on the GPU driver front as far as these builds and LibreELEC 8.x+ is concerned.
