Both the federal DV process and the TX state versioh apply only to debt collectors, not OCs.
OCs establish the validity of a debt via their prior billings, which are their statement that the debt is considered valid.
Texas Finance Code, Title 3
"Sec. 392.202. CORRECTION OF THIRD-PARTY DEBT COLLECTOR'S OR CREDIT BUREAU'S FILES. (a) An individual who disputes the accuracy of an item that is in a third-party debt collector's or credit bureau's file on the individual and that relates to a debt being collected by the third-party debt collector may notify in writing the third-party debt collector of the inaccuracy."

Debt validation is only for 3rd party collection agencies no matter where you live.
You can do a direct dispute with the OC, which does fall under the FCRA. And they do have to respond or they are in violation.
