Your download history is stored in a file named (appropriately enough) 
"download_history", which can be found in:

Windows 7:  C:\Users\<username>\.get_iplayer

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\.get_iplayer

Immediately after you install get_iplayer on the second machine, copy 
the "download_history" file from the old machine to the equivalent 
location on the new machine.  When you run get_iplayer on the new 
machine, it should use the download history you copied over and prevent 
re-downloading or any programmes.
