What bugs you about the output format? There are multiple ways to
display stored information, wireshark can be extremely usefull (and
unstable) or just dump plain text by replaying the pcap with ngrep.

Ways I used so far:

-tshark to produce pcap file (-b duration:x to split up files into time
-"sip set log on" to store it plain text in asterisk log files (or pjsip
 set logger on)
-ngrep -W byline to store it in 

Will look into in the near future:
-Homer via res_hep_pjsip
-voipmonitor (didn't know about till just now thanks to Marks reply)
