    You need to set up E1.31 outputs and set up the pixlite to listen for that data.

    I am pretty sure vixen can’t configure the controller the way xlights does.

    Yes Vixen will send E1.31 for the pixlight or other controller to act on.
    But you also need to configure your controller so that it knows how to use that data as in which lights/channels are on such ports. I think Keith is hinting that xlights can send that configuration data as well which is something Vixen can't do.
    But don't worry, I use Vixen and have a couple of pixlights and have no problem.
