From either the card/while in a card reader or via USB/with the AC plugged in...
Open the folder structure, navigate to the Stream folder.
Copy all of the mts file, paste them on your hard drive/or just paste the whole Stream folder and then rename on your hard drive.
You can use the free Splash Lite player to view the mts files. (search/download)
Once video scenes identified, you can rename each file to whatever you want.
If you recorded a long event and the files were broken up into chunks that need to be stitched together (a function of Pixela), use the free tsmuxer program; stitch together as "AVCHD" into one file. (search/download)
There's nothing special about Pixela, you aren't missing anything.
EDIT: Anytime you use the card with the computer; always initialize it in the camera after transfer. This will erase all of the video files, so make sure to back up the files to a second drive on the computer.
